Bottom Line: HS, also known as acne inversa, is a chronic and often debilitating disease primarily affecting the axillae, inframammary regions and perineum.The location of the lesions may lead to social embarrassment and failure to seek medical treatment.Excisional surgery with reconstruction is the recommended treatment with a high likelihood of good outcome.

ABSTRACT
Scrotal elephantiasis has been a recognized complication of inguinal node irradiation, filarial infection, tumor involvement and surgical lymphatic destruction, but has rarely been reported in association with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). HS, also known as acne inversa, is a chronic and often debilitating disease primarily affecting the axillae, inframammary regions and perineum. The location of the lesions may lead to social embarrassment and failure to seek medical treatment. Scroto-preineal HS complicated by scrotal elephantiasis is a distressing disease. Excisional surgery with reconstruction is the recommended treatment with a high likelihood of good outcome. We present a 38-year-old male patient with long-standing scroto-perineal HS complicated by giant scrotal elephantiasis.

Mentions: The suprapubic catheter was removed, voided normally per urethra and the patient is due to have the colostomy closed. He is walking and experiencing a happy social life and positive self-image. Further plastic surgery is planned for ongoing axillary HS [Figure 2].
